Jonathan Quick is scheduled to start in goal for the Kings Thursday against St. Louis at Staples Center -- and that will become a familiar sight as the Kings approach their final dozen regular-season games.
Quick had split starting time with Jonathan Bernier the last few weeks -- each started five of the last 10 games -- but with crunch time coming, Coach Terry Murray said the starts will be more heavily weighted toward Quick.
"It's important to start to put the focus on one goaltender a little bit more now and that's the plan and I'll follow through with that plan if everything works out accordingly," Murray said after Thursday's game-day skate in El Segundo.
"I plan on using Quick more to get him ready. He's been our No. 1 goaltender right from the beginning and that's where I plan to go to.
